Assemblyman Mike Gatto (D-Burbank) today encouraged college graduates to apply for the prestigious Capitol Fellows Programs offered by the different branches of state government.
The Jesse Marvin Unruh Assembly Fellowship, the California Senate Fellowship, the Executive (Gubernatorial) Fellowship and the Judicial Administration Fellowship are jointly sponsored by the Center for California Studies at California State University. They provide grads a monthly living stipend and the opportunity to gain valuable experience working in Sacramento for up to eleven months. The deadline to apply for the programs is February 10, 2014.
“These fellowships are excellent opportunities for students or others to gain firsthand knowledge of the operations of the three branches of state government, and represent their community in Sacramento,” said Assemblyman Gatto. “Those interested in politics, public policy and serving their community should apply for one or more of these excellent programs.”
Former fellows include a justice of the California Supreme Court, members of the United States Congress and the California State Legislature, a deputy director of the Peace Corps, corporate executives and attorneys, a director of a well-respected non-profit advocacy organization and local government and community leaders.
